But, it is the worst parking garage in America.

Doesn't matter if I can walk to work and to the stores I need to every day/week.

Where are you going to buy clothes or hardware?

I don't need to buy clothes or hardware on a weekly basis.

Not exactly.  It's evil twin is in Chicago across from the former RR Donnelly Building in The Loop.  Except with that garage, they actually painted it and put colored stripes on the grounds.  Kuhn is from Chi-town.  So I recon the basic garage plan was duplicated and put to use in The Plaza.

Walked by Modera again on the way to lunch yesterday. That thing is big. It's definitely added a city-feel to the blocks around it.

This combined with the ridiculously over-the-top security is the reason I wouldn't buy there.  Yes, I'm walking back to my apartment with 2 friends.  No, they don't need to freaking sign in.  I'm paying the damn HOA fees, leave me alone.

I dunno.

In this day and age it seems to me like there's no such thing as too much security.

Just wait until some goofball loaded down with weapons and ammunition decides that building would make a good target to enact his vengeance upon society in.

Well it's cliche, but A) that mindset is what terrorists want, so I do my part by not believing in it.  B ) Don't get me wrong, I want security.  But when I use my FOB to open the door, I wave to security, and I'm talking with the people walking in with me, they're my guests.  They don't need to register.  That's overly cumbersome and a massive turnoff for me.

As someone who lived in 55 West, a few hundred feet from this building -- the security is needed. It's the difference between a nice building and a complete dump.

I get what you're saying and I don't mean to come across as being argumentative, but there are so many different unknowable scenarios that could play out that I think all they can do is adopt a blanket policy and stick to it for everyone, because it would be impossible to tailor their policy to fit every resident.

And then of course there's the issue of liability.

Let some kook carry out a violent act in there and the personal injury lawyers would be climbing over each other's backs to sue the owners for millions.

I guess I just kinda see their side of it.

Oh I see the side, but I'm just saying it's a burden.  My home shouldn't be a burden.  It's a reason I haven't purchased there and I know others that haven't for the same reason.  Plus that parking garage.

I think that level of security and the attendant inconvenience is or is going to be, the new reality for all people who live in high rise buildings like that.

Sign of the times, unfortunately.

Still waiting for an answer from someone. Is Modera visible from I-4 yet?

 

No, not yet. You can see the crane, but the building itself is still not tall enough yet. Snapped a few pics while sitting in traffic:

You know, at this point, I would kinda look at buying a condo at a discount rate in Solaire. Lake View-Shmake view. We got density, we got grocery, we got a Walgreens, we got restaurants, we got a movie theater downstairs, we can walk to a Performing Arts theater or a soccer game, we can enjoy ourselves downtown and not worry about an uber and be right THERE. Discount it poorly reacting to the lack of the lake. I can walk to the lake, I don't need to see it when I wake up every day. 

/Probably still couldn't afford it even if it over-corrects.

 

What price range would be considered a discount rate? And how many beds/baths/sq ft are you looking for? Any other condos in the CBD that you'd consider buying?

Even after it's finished you probably just barely be able to see the top of the roof line.

I'm not exactly buying. . . just saying that a bargain for DT would be appreciated from these levels.

That is a good shot and a sweet as hell old school jeep cherokee!

From the other photo I see you were parked on I-4 JFW. hahaha, typical. Be careful when taking the next shot. I am sure you can find a time you will be parked there again!

While I appreciate the compliment, I must point out that you got me confused with nite owl the actual photographer of said photographs.

But thanks anyway. :thumbsup:
